Chug that chili.

Bengals fans certainly have special ways to show their support for the team.

While tattoos are a permanent and popular way to immortalize your love for the team, there’s nothing more unmistakable in Cincinnati than a celebratory chug of Skyline chili straight from the can to support. the Bengals on their way to the Super Bowl.

It’s been a good trend since the team started their winning streak. If the Bengals win a point? Slam a chili pepper to hold it. Down? Chug one for good luck.

While these youngsters may not know why their family insists they probably drink Cincinnati-style chili at room temperature like it’s a 1980s Hudepohl “Hu-Dey” Bengals beerit’s actually not too bad if you’re willing to try.

Many Bengals fans seem totally unfazed. Thanks to the can’s pull-top lid, the same basic principles of tapping a beer can literally be applied to tapping a can of watery ground beef.

Barstool Cincinnati has an entire channel dedicated to chilli videos.

There’s also the slightly more sophisticated take: chili shots in honor of “Shooter” McPherson.

Just a side note: a 15-ounce can of Skyline Original Chili contains 430 calories, 10 grams of saturated fat, 125 milligrams of cholesterol, and 1,830 milligrams of sodium (that’s 80 percent of the recommended daily value).

The influence of social media is temporary, coronary health is lifelong. So don’t make a habit of this stunt. Or do it, as long as it cements the Bengals’ winning streak.

The Bengals will face the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LVI on Sunday, February 13. The Rams won the NFC Championship Game on Jan. 30 to advance with the Bengals, who defeated the Kansas City Chiefs in overtime hours earlier to become the AFC Champions.

The Super Bowl takes place at 6:30 p.m. at the Rams’ home of SoFi Stadium in Inglewood. NBC will broadcast the game, and fans can also watch on Peacock, Telemundo, NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app.
